Are you the type of person that only think about work and work? I have a friends with this workoholic things. She is not workoholic, but her husband is. Her husband is so madly in work. He has forgot about his responsibilities to his wife. They did not have any children yet. She always alone at home. Pity on her. What you all think about this?

What your friend should do is to engage herself in some educational avocation or some hobbies instead of staying one at home. As far as I am concerned, I am a workoholic - meaning when there is a job on hand, I would like to complete it on time and it calls for devotion and hardwork. But I still find time for family and friends on weekends.

Her husband just didn't allow her to do anything except stay at home doing nothing. What a selfish man!

I do not think any one should subject the housewife to such imprionment which is almost equivalent to slavery. She should protest against this anarchy and exercise her freedom. If she do not take initiative, no one can help her.

Yes, it's true. She herself should stand for her right. No one could help her if she doesn't make the first move. Thanks!

I must admit that there were times in my life that required me to work long and hard....it was difficult for my family during that time....I feel that I missed things that I will never be able to get back...I worked 10-12 hours a day for several years....during my days off...I spent time with my children...I made an effort to attend their functions of sports and cheerleading... I feel very fortunate not to have to endure these long hours now and am available to spend time with my children and grandchildren.... He may feel that he is trying to support his family and feels stress to provide the best he can....he may also feel that while they have no children he can make enough money to provide a good home for this child when/if they decide to do so.... I am sure that his wife does feel lonely...maybe she should get a part time job or learn a hobby....maybe she would make a good referral for you at myLot...LOL good topic, my friend...take care...

Thanks for the response. The problem is, her husband did not allow her to work or even go out with her friends. That is the main problems. He just too jealous to see his wife go out with her friends. I really can't accept what her husband do to her.

This does sound like he is being unfair to her....this kind of controling behavior is probably not going to get any better...I would also be concerned about her...this is not a healthy realtionship....she needs to take a serious look at her options, in my opinion.....

Yes, it is so serious. It have been going since her wedding. She just cry everyday and don't know how to deal with her husband about this. I have advise her to slowly discuss with her husband. She did it. Try guess what her husband say, he say that "You just stay at home and be fully housewife. Let me do the working and earning". Her husband sometimes didn't gave her money. I'm so angry with her husband!
